Holy Prophet SAW and the Holy Word of God

The Holy Qur’an emphatically affirms that it is the Word of God and that our lord and master, Muhammad [peace and blessings of Allah be on him] is His true Prophet and Messenger, on whom that Holy Word has descended. This claim is clearly set forth in the following verses:
(Al-e-‘Imran, 1, 2)

Allah is He beside Whom there is none worthy of worship. All life and sustenance is from Him. He has sent down to thee this Book in accordance with truth and the requirements of truth.
al-Nisa’, 4:171
O mankind, the Messenger has indeed come to you with Truth and with the requirements of truth.

 Bani Isra’il, 17:106
We have revealed this Discourse to you in accordance with the requirements of truth and with truth has it descended


al-Nisa’, 4:175
O mankind, there has come to you a manifest proof from your Lord, and We have sent down to you 
a clear Light.

al-A‘raf, 7:159
Proclaim to all people: I have been sent as a Messenger to you all.

Muhammad, 47:3
Allah will forgive their sins and improve their lot, who believe and perform good deeds and believe in this Book which has been revealed to Muhammad [peace and blessings of Allah be on him], and also believe that it alone is the truth.

There are hundreds of other verses in which the claim has been put forward clearly that the Holy Qur’an is the Word of God and that Muhammad, the chosen one [peace and blessings of Allah be on him] is His true Prophet. But the verses that we have set out should suffice.

We would remind our opponents that this claim is not put forth in any other book as forcefully as it has been put forth in the Holy Qur’an. We are very eager that the Aryas should show from the Vedas that the four Vedas claimed to be the word of God and set forth clearly that they were revealed to such and such a person at such and such a time. For a book, on behalf of which it is claimed that it is from God, it is a primary necessity that it should set forth this claim clearly. It would be an impertinence to attribute to God a book which gives no indication of its being from God.

A second matter which is worth mentioning is that not only has the Holy Qur’an claimed that it is from God and that the Holy Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be on him] is the Messenger of Allah, but has also established this claim with strong and powerful arguments. We shall set forth all these arguments in their order, but for the moment we present the first argument so that seekers after truth should be able to compare in this respect other books with the Holy Qur’an. We also invite every opponent that if this method of proof establishes the truth of a book and is found in their books also, they should set it forth in their papers and journals; otherwise, we would have to conclude that their books lack this proof of high degree. We affirm with full confidence that this method of proof will not be found in their religion and if we are in error, they should prove it.
